Redesigned Huawei Mercury Ice for Cricket wll be available from Radio Shack on September 5th
This is obviously not your high-end device, but for $149.99 without a contract, there is some good value there. Cricket is offering unlimited talk, text, music and data plan for $50 per month. And to top it all off, it looks like buyers are getting a free 8GB microSD card right out of the box.

If the Huawei Mercury Ice has a 1Ghz processor, then there is a change in hardware. The Huawei Mercury has a 1.4Ghz processor (http://www.phonearena.com/phon
es/Huawei-Mercury_id5662).$149.99 is also a better price than the Huawei Mercury which was $249.99, but is on sale online for $199.99.

Actually, the device in this article looks more like the Huawei Ascend G600 (http://www.engadget.com/2012/0
8/31/huawei-ascend-g600-hands-on/ ), but with the camera and sensors switched and 4 capacitive buttons at the bottom instead of 3. I think that this could be the US/Cricket variant of the Ascend of the G600. Or it could even be a white version of the Ascend G330 (http://www.engadget.com/2012/0 8/31/huawei-ascend-330-hands-on/)
